Love it I spend hours on this app every day. Great combo of funny, sexy and heart warming pictures/gifs/videos. I am one of the lucky few that got version 2.0. my feedback would be that when "side scrolling galleries" is enabled, it shows pictures number.... ie "4 / 20". Disabling push notifications doesn't work, I still get notifications. Also an option to download videos too would be great.
New Setup Lost functionality I look at this on my tablet in landscape mode which apparently doesn't work anymore. Wasn't broke didn't need to be fixed. I'd appreciate at least that function to be included. Also, the search function keeps saying I haven't put in more than 3 letters when i have 3 words in it. Lastly any search results that are actually generated are missing the dates that they were posted so I have no chronological order for them.
New Update to 2.0 Was working great on the 1.whatever version but ever since the big version 2 update it has sucked balls on Android devices. I can tell that the Chive team works all through Apple devices because nothing has been fixed in the past months since the update. Whenever I try to sign in it kicks me out of the app. Plus you need to sign in to access all the fun posts like Burn Your Bra and Sunday is a Good Day for Lingerie. Can't even see all the posts I can access.
Older Version was better Pictures are too big for the screen. Too many ads now. Can't seem to find DAR, FLBP, DMA, Hump Day pics or just about anything related to chivettes. I feel like the app has a child lock that filters out all the good stuff. The old layout didn't need to be improved. If I could change anything, I would recommend going back to the old layout and be able to comment on each picture as opposed to just the gallery, but also have a section for users to continue to submit their own pictures.
WAS a good app till updated to new format Use to be a good app format and style wise. Content is still fun to look at but this newly updated format is sucks monkey balz. Nothing works can't use it on wifi since the gif's won't play can't watch video's on wifi either. Even using my data the gif's half azz work. This whole option of side scrolling or not should have just left it alone the old format was better and worked better sometime simple is best. May have to delete this app since can't enjoy it anymore. New format has to go.
Love it, but... Ok, my rating doesn't reflect how I normally feel about the app. I love The Chive, and their app is pretty good: very few crashes, everything usually works with no problems, BUT... Every time they update the app, I lose everything I saved. Any articles or galleries that I saved to come back to later or show someone later are always gone. That's why I almost never update the app. So, my suggestion to anyone considering the app: download it, enjoy it, but never update it.
